What I read

I read blogs, books, online news

Side projects

I recently self-published a "commuter length" erotic romance. I experiment with different website platforms to find pros and cons determining the right fit for my needs. I blog when not occupied with other projects.

Ideal team

I love working with dynamic self-starters who are motivated by doing a good job. The best manager I've ever worked with made sure I had the ability to do the job, gave me the parameters and deadline - and just enough rope to succeed or hang myself.
